BackstoryI started making salted muffins lately. This one's my sister's favourite.
- 200g / ½ lb fresh spinach
- 200g / ½ lb feta cheese, crumbled
- 300g / 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons yeast
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 250g / 2/3 cup yoghurt
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F.
- Cut the spinach stem and wash the leaves. Boil salted water in a big pan and boil the spinach leaves for 10 minutes. Rinse them under running cold water, drain them and chop them.
- Crumble the feta cheese.
- In a bowl, sift the flour, yeast and salt.
- In another bowl, beat the egg, then add the yoghurt, the oil, feta and spinach.
- Mix the content of both bowls. Don't stir too much, so as to keep whole bits of feta cheese.
- Fill 12 muffin tins, buttered/oiled if needed. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the knife blade comes out clean.
- Leave to cool a few minutes.
